The federal classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug doesn’t just defy all scientific evidence; it isn’t just another way logic and reason are sacrificed on the altar of the War On Drugs.
Marijuana’s erroneous and nonsensical classification as a Schedule I substance is emblematic of all that is insane with marijuana policy in the United States. It is one big reason American drug policy serves as a worldwide laughingstock of ineffectiveness and futility.
Why on earth are we still laboring under a system which equates cannabis with heroin, and considers pot to be more dangerous than cocaine or meth?
